Friends Are Rare Jewels - Part II

It is amazing how life can be without friends around you. It is also amazing having so many friends with different traits and attitudes. You just have to deal with them. It is also amazing that some of them undergo ‘transition’, revealing every true sense of the words of who they actually are. Some become acquaintances rather than someone we can call friend. These are the type of friends I have.

I have a friend who treats me like shit. I never treat her like shit. Just so to let her know.

I have a friend who treats me like shit. I always invisible. It is okay with me.

I have a friend who does not want me to be closed with the other friends of ours. That’s with me. I’ll let him have him.

I have a friend who wants to be somebody, but he is a nobody. Then he tries again. He still a nobody.

I have a friend who likes to rival in almost everything I do. I told him I am nothing near to his challenge. I am not rich nor am I have the looks. In fact, he is nothing like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise that I want to rival for. Please find someone else to your level.

I have a friend who likes to provoke me into games of jealousy. He told me the other day that he was with my close friend when he knew I wasn’t there. So why bother telling me if you must ask. It is all in the game of jealousy!

I have a friend who gives me lots of excuses. It is okay to say no if you are not interested.

I have friends’ friends who think I am a snobbish. He was right. Sometimes I like to be snobbish, it’s a thrill.

I have a friend who plans lot of activities but never implement them. He falls back to other female friend. He gets all the credits.

I have a friend who gives excuses when canceling last minute plans. One or two times are okay. I never invite him since the last outing.

I have a friend who thinks he is a genius. He thinks those who go to pubs and birthday parties are bunch of losers. I pity him.

I have a friend who spreads negatives vibes. I try to avoid this type of friends.

I have a friend who wants me to respect or look up on him. Which I did, sometimes, as a friend.

I have friend who are slightly overweight. I never feel embarrass near them. I enjoy their companies. I wish it could be forever. My worries are when they start to lose that extra pound they will find other friends. I wish they stay the way they are!

I have friends who are not pretty. But inside them, they are beautiful – first class. I love being around with them. Sometimes I share them beauty and fashion tips. Just to get rid some of the unnecessary.

I have friends who are older than me. But they act like 20’s. I like them.

I have friends who are older than me. But they act like 20’s. Sometimes I don’t like them. They abandoned their wives and kids.

I have friends who are short. Sometimes I ask them to walk first. Takut bah orang pikir sia ada anak suda. But I don’t mind at all.

I have a friend who keeps asking me to go the cinema. Inside while the movie is on he plays with text messages. I stop going to the cinema.

I have a friend who likes to interrupt. One fine day, I told her to shut up and let me finish otherwise she’s being rude. To this day, she still interrupts.

I have friends who are very quiet and only talk when the right time comes. Great to know them.

I have a friend who likes to be photographed. They are nothing like model. I envy their courage. Sometimes it gives joy to my heart every time I see them in front of the camera.

I have many best friends. They are angel!

My dearest friends, sometimes it’s quite difficult for us to find out what is lacking and what others don’t like about us. We need other people to provide the mirror for us to figure out our flaws and defects.

All this while, many of you have provided me the mirror that I need to improve myself, so that I can be a great friend to have. At least some one that you can call friend. A friend that brings out the best in friendship. A friend that able to listen to you. A friend that provides you a different vision of what life has to offer. A version that improves and enriches ourselves.

A friend that makes life meaningful and wonderful. That brings wonders and glows to your heart. A friend that when you wake up one morning they are there for you. Something that you look forward to. Something that gets life going. Something that make us live and carry on. Some one that you can call friend. JJP

Friends Are Rare Jewels - Part I

There once was a little girl who had a bad temper. Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the girl didn't lose her temper at all. She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold her temper.

The days passed and the young girl was finally able to tell her mother that all the nails were gone. The mother took her daughter by the hand and led her to the fence. She said, "You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. " You can put a knife in a person and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Long Time No See - I'm Back

1. I am back. With style! I know. It’s been a while. I have been busy with work and facebook. Sorii la bah! I’ve decided to blog most of the events in the last 5 months. In randomness. Kunun lagi bahh.

2. It gives tears to my heart every time I see my mom has to deal another terrible flood. This was the fourth time this year. Time like this one can see the deepest love, greatest might and patient a person will sacrifice for their loved ones. I took compassionate leave to help mom. To do the cleaning bah. Up to 5 am.

3. I was asked to choreograph the Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan Papar 2008. I was also the judge for the Gala Nite. The task was easy. Choose the winners for the Miss Topiodo and Miss Tosuou.

3a. I also choreographed the Gawai-Kaamatan Beauty Pageant Parade in Miri this year. This was my second time. I did the same last year where it was held at The Atlantis. Labuan will host next year. We brought the State Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan Winner 2008 and the top 7 Penampang Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan. Velvet AF5 joined us too.

4. I was one of the judges for the Ratu Pesta Rumbia pageant in Kuala Penyu. I enjoyed it! A few of the contestants really walk very well. Well, I taught them before in modelling and how to strike a brilliant pose. They managed to get the Top 7 placings. Anak murid boh gia. Mr. Os was the MC. When I took my 'saguhati' from the organiser, he commented that I looked like a fashion designer and model, rather than a beauty pageant judge. Tau pun diaaa .... he he.

5. I can’t recall the last time I took a dip into a river. That’s ‘mandi sungai’. A group of friends decided to go to Tenom as part of the ‘cuti cuti Malaysia’ and ‘walking-walking find food’ activities over the weekend, and mandi sungai was one of the agenda. I had a great time!! And guess what? We were there again the weekend after that!

6. Felix came over to my workplace twice to deal with the artist permit, up front payment and other matters. He is one of the artistes performing in an event we organised this middle of August.

7. My congratulations to the organiser of the Sabah Bloggers Gathering (SBG). I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. And the performances too. Met a few bloggers! I didn’t mingle around from table to table though, malu bah siaaa! Kalu ada beer berani la kali kann.

8. I hate when over-friendly hantu (ghosts) followed me home. 3 times already ooh! And this time I can see them. Not just that feeling ooh!! *dakat pingsan bah sia!* It made me ‘pandang belakang’ all the time. I also have that eerie feeling of some one watching me all the time. Not to mention the goose bum!! Now kaaannnn, I switch on bah the light every time I sleep and my eyes wide open when I take my shower. Berdiri bah saja bulu bulu kuuu! Siiitttttt butul.

9. Yup! Another dipping in the river again!! This time we had a BBQ at Kibunut River. 12-15 km from Donggongon, Tambunan-Keningau Road. Siokkk bah!!

10. I met Stacy AF6 the other day she performed at Q Ball. My village mate. Same village bah we olz. She looked great and congratulations to her.
